The Mercy foundation of OLOR and our Catholic faith are evident through the artwork and displays around the school. The provision of prayer spaces and the priority of prayer in the school’s daily life supports and enhances the Church’s mission of evangelisation. Teachers, in their relationships with students, continually give witness to the gospel. We aim to work in partnership with parents who are the primary educators of their children and the creators of the environment in which their children first come to know and love God.
For Our Lady of the Rosary School to provide a quality education in a Christ-Centred, Catholic community, where children are nurtured in a secure and challenging environment.
The Mission of our school, as part of the wider mission of the Catholic Church of Broken Bay, is to nurture our children into a community of disciples of Jesus.
We are a hope-filled community working together to provide a distinctively Catholic curriculum and learning environment for our children.
Our Catholic worldview informs the way that we live together, learn and teach as we are influenced by the traditions of our Mercy heritage. We believe that the gift of God’s love for each of us is central to our relationships.
I give you a new commandment, that you love one another.
Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.
By this everyone will know that you are my disciples,
?if you have love for one another.
We are committed to the development of the whole child – spiritually, socially, emotionally, academically and physically within a safe and stimulating learning environment.
Therefore, we will
- Share our Catholic story and beliefs with our children.
- Enable the development of quality relationships as the basis for quality teaching, learning and behaviour.
- Honour and respect the God-given uniqueness of each of our children providing challenging learning experiences that meet their needs
- Empower our children to be critical thinkers who are able to make a difference in their world as witnesses to the Good News of Jesus
- Encourage our children to be self-motivated, reflective and competent learners, who are growing in their knowledge and experience of God through the people and environments that make up our world
- Include and welcome all into our community, treating each person with respect and care, so as to create a sense of belonging and connectedness
- Challenge and support all in our community – children, parents and teachers – to see themselves as life-long learners, committed to continuous improvement
- Celebrate achievements, recognising that every person has God-given gifts and that we each have the responsibility to use, develop and share those gifts with other.
For God Alone
